Since graduating from Newfoundland and Labrador’s Memorial University School of Pharmacy in 1999, Rod Forsey has volunteered for both advocacy and regulatory bodies in an effort to support pharmacy’s evolution toward more patient-centred care. His dedication to practice change has shaped his career path as well at Lawtons Drugs, where he currently holds the position of Pharmacy Services Specialist for Halifax and Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. While some would say he is already doing his part, Forsey believes he can do much more to support the profession–but the missing piece needs to come from outside pharmacy.

The Wellspring Award will enable Forsey to complete the Certificate in Engaging Stakeholders and Leading Change offered by the Executive & Professional Development department at St. Mary’s University. “This award will allow me to explore an opportunity for further education that I can use to promote pharmacy and help others within our profession transition to a clinically focused model,” says Forsey. “It will also allow me to build upon my previous advocacy and regulatory experience to be a leader in our province and company.”

Canada’s Charity of Choice to Support Pharmacy

As a registered charity, the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy (CFP) is uniquely positioned to fund practical research and innovative practice models at the grassroots level, as well as recognize the leaders of today and tomorrow. Our vision is to be a catalyst for change in the profession of pharmacy by seeking out, nurturing and inspiring innovation. Your donations are a way to give back to a profession that has much to look forward to. Thank you for your support.
